A BRIT Award-winning UK chart-topper is one of three headline acts set to perform at a balloon race event in Cheshire next month.

Sonique is set to perform at the Great Balloon Race Extravaganza at Bolesworth Castle which starts on Friday, August 6.

She will perform on the Friday night, before 90s sensation Rozalla headlines on Saturday, and Angie Brown will finish the weekend on Sunday.

Event director Adam Faulkner is pleased to have a selection of big names headlining at the event again.

He said: “Our headline acts have always been a big part of our shows and it’s great to be able to bring Sonique, Rozalla and Angie Brown to Cheshire.

“They are incredible performers and add extra star quality to what is an already amazing array of entertainment on show.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing the Great Balloon Race festival to Bolesworth Castle.”

The three pop stars will be joined by an amazing weekend of aerial entertainment at the Cheshire venue, which features up to 50 of the UK’s best hot air balloons taking to the skies and also performing a dazzling night glow show with the Ibiza Classics Orchestra.

Spectators will also get the chance to see a daredevil paramotor display by the Sky Rascals and the breath-taking Sky Dance which is performed from a 100ft crane by Incandescence.

The evening ends with a dynamic fireworks display.

Organisers have retained certain socially distanced plots, which can hold a maximum of six adults, while mixing between plots is also feasible for larger groups.

The event will also continue to operate a ‘click & collect’ food and drinks service – via an event app – and provide additional toilet facilities.

There are three options of plots available, standard, premium and VIP with prices ranging from £65 to £240.

All balloon activities are weather permitting and conducted in accordance with Civil Aviation Authority guidelines.
